This week, RXO announced that a new AI-powered truck check-in system is in use at a Texas facility.
On January 16, RXO said that the new AI truck check-in system is now in use at a cross-border company facility in Laredo, Texas.
When a truck arrives at the facility, the system uses video technology to record trailer numbers and match those numbers to scheduled appointments in order to streamline the check-in process and enhance security. RXO says that by applying machine learning computer vision and text recognition to video feed from the gate house, they can “almost instantly” identify the truck and notify staff of its arrival, reducing wait times for drivers.
RXO says that “these tasks were previously handled manually, with facility employees documenting truck information and directing carriers to warehouse docks or yard locations. This led to truck backups at the gate during the check-in process due to high traffic, manual documentation and typing errors.”
RXO says they plan to implement the AI truck check-in technology at other high volume facilities in the future.
“RXO’s visual AI technology is already producing positive results at our Laredo, Texas facility, including reduced wait times at the gate,” said Yoav Amiel, chief information officer at RXO. “This advanced technology speeds up the process for carriers and helps shippers save time and money. We’re thrilled to continue to use machine learning and AI to provide our shippers and carriers with cutting-edge ways to make their operations more efficient.”
